Houses

All students and staff are members of a House, and they are encouraged to participate in as many House activities as possible.  

Most form classes are made up of students from one house, with some form classes comprising students of two houses. 

The Houses are Awatere (red), Kaituna (blue), Opawa (yellow) and Wairau (green).  House Prefects are appointed annually and House Deputies are elected by the House at the beginning of the year.

A series of Inter-House Competitions are held annually from February to November to foster involvement, team work and lively competition.  These include the swimming sports, athletic sports, cross country, House Drama and House Choir Competitions.  House points are awarded for participation and to winners. House placings are published and the banners in the Hall are displayed according to the previous year’s competition. 

 The Champion House for 2017 (Winner of the Rickard Shield) was AWATERE with 129 pts.

Close behind in second equal place were Opawa and Kaituna on 125 pts, followed by Wairau on 117 pts.

Well done to each and every student and staff member who participated in House events this year and helped to make it such a close competition.
